Loma Negra’s L’Amalí 2 project involves an investment of US$350m

The L’Amalí cement plant is strategically located in the centre of Buenos Aires province, Argentina. It is connected by railroad to Loma Negra’s main distribution centre, LomaSer, 40km from Buenos Aires city, an area that accounts for approximately 44 per cent of domestic cement consumption.

The expansion project involves the addition of a second line, adjacent to Line 1. It includes a state-of-the-art kiln, two vertical roller mills and bagging and palletising facilities. The project aims to optimise the existing facilities at Line 1 and reduce the complexity of jointly operating both lines.
